Cosmogenic radionuclide dating of glacial landforms in the Lahul Himalaya , northern India : defining the timing of Late Quaternary glaciation

  title={Cosmogenic radionuclide dating of glacial landforms in the Lahul Himalaya , northern India : defining the timing of Late Quaternary glaciation},
  author={Lewis A. Owen and L Gualtieri and Robert C. Finkel and M W Caffee and DOUG I. BENN and Milap C. Sharma},
The timing of glaciation in the Lahul Himalaya of northern India was ascertained using the concentrations of cosmogenic 10Be and 26Al from boulders on moraines and drumlins, and from glacially polished bedrock surfaces. Five glacial stages were identified: Sonapani I and II, Kulti, Batal and Chandra. Of these, cosmogenic exposure ages were obtained on samples representative of the Batal and Kulti glacial cycles. Stratigraphical relationships indicate that the Sonapani I and II are younger. No… CONTINUE READING
